A New Title in the "Expository Essays Series"!!
This brief study of Revelation 1-3 focuses on answering the question, "What does the Lord Jesus Christ look for in his churches?" Such a question is a far cry from the popular question "What do people want in a church?" From the messages to each respective church in Asia Minor, we may derive a particular virtue that the Lord values in his church: Devotion to Christ, Ethical Holiness, Doctrinal Integrity, Faithfulness in Persecution and more.

A daily devotional is a useful resource to people living in a fast-paced world. Although there is no substitute for the daily discipline of reading and studying God's word, yet a book of brief devotional thoughts like this volume from Elder Ralph Harris may serve a spiritually beneficial purpose between opportunities for more intensive focus on the Scriptures.
Ralph E. Harris has served as an ordained minister among the Primitive Baptists for over fifty years. For thirty-three of those years, he was editor of The Advocate and Messenger, a respected Primitive Baptist periodical. He and Melba, his wife of fifty years, reside in the panhandle of north Florida.

Subtitle: Scriptural Record Considered, Objections Addressed, plus Historical Evidence of Baptist Support
All loss in death is difficult, but the death of a little child is particularly so. It hurts like a blow in the solar plexus. It leaves folk wondering if they will ever smile again. In this excellent study, Elder Ivey presents arguments both from Holy Scripture and from Baptist history to support the proposition that God, in his prescience and love, provides eternal security for all who die in infancy. He shows that this position is consistent with God’s word and with the views of many notable Baptists of antiquity. Before you dismiss his position as a mere exercise in sentimentality, I urge you to give thoughtful consideration to his arguments. I think you will find them to be cogent and compelling. (from the Foreword)
The exposition of The Sermon on the Mount is our Lord's most comprehensive treatment of Christian discipleship in the Gospels. Jesus begins by defining the distinguishing traits of Christian character...
God gave us stories. We can be happy that He did not reveal truth in
the language of a textbook or technical manual, but in the real-life
stories of Biblical characters, like David.
At least forty-one chapters in the Old Testament, more than any
other Bible character, are devoted to the biographical narrative of
this "man after God's own heart."

The Gospel according to Luke is not a collection of abstract doctrines, but the story of Jesus making His way to the cross of Calvary...Employing various geographic areas as the setting in which the different scenes in the drama of Jesus' life occur, Luke leads us on a remarkable journey to the cross. He appears as a sort of "tour guide," taking his readers first to Bethlehem and Nazareth...then to Gaililee, and finally to Jerusalem to be crucified.

Subtitled "Six Men God Used to Bless His People," this volume is a delightful biographical sketch of God's work in the lives of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Joseph & Moses, together with contemporary applications of various lessons to the lives of believers in every age.
These are irreverent times. From the sacrilege of pop-culture to the push for a more casual, user-friendly, and seeker-sensitive approach to church worship, Biblical subjects like "the fear of the Lord" have almost slipped into obscurity. In such a climate of irreverence, it is crucial that Christian people take God seriously once again. Gowens believes that the rediscovery of reverence is the great need of the contemporary church.
Join him as he traces the answer to the question "What does it mean to fear God?" through the Scriptures. Many professing believers today may be surprised to discover that "fearing God" is a theme developed in the New Testament as well as the Old.
A Christian apologetic for the person in the pew, this volume aims to equip both the young and the more mature believer in defending the faith.

Expository Essays on The Gospel of John

Paperback, 184 pp
Salvation by grace alone is the heart of the gospel message. Apart from God's sovereign initiative to bestow blessing on people who deserved his wrath, heaven would be vacant and a thousand hells filled to capacity. The good news of the gospel is that salvation, from start to finish, is all of Divine grace and none of human works. Salvation is of the Lord.
The instinct to pray is a gift of Divine grace. But the ability to pray better and more effectively is a spiritual discipline. God hears the simplest child's prayer if it comes from the heart. Growth in grace, however, involves progress toward maturity in the Christian's prayer-life. In twenty-five brief chapters, the author explores the great prayers of the saint recorded in Scripture, dividing them into the four categories of prayer: Adoration, Intercession, Petition, & Confession. Study along and learn the dynamics of a more vibrant and vigorous prayer-life.

Melanie (Danger) Painter was an extraordinary woman of faith. She succumbed to cancer at the tender age of 34 on March 15, 1996. All who knew and loved her will be thankful for this testimony to her faith and courage, and this memoir of her devotion to and dependance on the Lord even during the darkest hours of her final battle.
Author: Michael L. Gowens
The author takes issue with the Cyprian dictum, "There is no salvation outside the church." He insists that the only "means of grace" is Christ himself and His death on the cross, not the word or the sacrament. The church is primarily a pastoral, not redemptive, institution.
